We stayed for two nights in the middle of September. Neat little airport in a cool and somewhat touristy town. We stopped for an overnight while touring the Rockies a bit and ended up staying an extra night to enjoy some local sights. As mentioned below, the airport deserves respect due to the altitude and topography. For noise, it looks like pilots are discouraged from departing off RY 32 but safety comes first. The little FBO shack is a welcome facility for pilots who need a little shelter or time to rest. Thank you airport manager Amy Helm for keeping a great option available to visiting pilots!

This airport is a bit tight. The runway is only 3300 feet long at an altitude of about 6000 feet. It's also tucked into a fairly tight canyon. Beware of density altitude. But if you pay attention, it's not that bad. The runway is in good shape but not much else is. The taxiway widens and narrows unpredictably, taking you close to parked aircraft. The FBO office is old and a bit dilappated but functional. The gas pump works fine. No one was there when I stopped in. Be aware that you can get AWOS-type information if you click your microphone three times.
